So I guess, by growing older, you start to adapt a bit to the fact that exitement is not so exiting, or new anymore. That said, I do have an almost permanent feeling of lack of satisfaction, caused by that lack of novelty. But I guess I am also adapting to the fact that there are only so many things to do in life and that all wears off quickly


I think this is true. There's only so much you can do and you get used to the excitement of stuff, so it becomes mundane.

I think the people who remain interested and enthused with their lives as they get older have to be the people who can look for interest within themselves and express that in what they do.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

They have something to believe in, and that is all they need.
It's not that much. But it's also everything.

This is very true. I don't need other people. I'm a party.
